Change 1 FEAR And You Can Change It All!

If you’ve been finding yourself stalled and distracted the past few weeks, you’re not alone.

Mark Richtermeyer, CEO of the Spitfire Group, is acknowledged to be a wildly successful serial entrepreneur. But even he isn’t immue. He spent a full day pouring over his company’s financials and nothing else. Then he interviewed potential sales people who were all so anxious they were offering to work on straight commission.

So he absorbed their anxiety too.

When he took a step back, he realized his entire view had narrowed in and he’d been focused on himself. As a result he’d joined in on the anxiety even further.

I’ve learned over the years that ‘navel gazing’ only breeds more anxiety. It’s time to shift your focus!

Ask yourself:

“What are 3 trends in the marketplace that I can leverage?”

Grab a piece of paper and note them down. Even better, get your mind stimulated by the work others have done for you – go get yourself a copy of 2008 Entrepreneur magazine’s December 2008 issue on trends to spark your imagination.

Create a list of the top 10 ideas that come to mind and spend at least an hour every day focused on what is possible. That will keep you heads up in the daylight and ahead of the pack in locating your opportunities.
